The Chefs' Warehouse, Inc. to Appoint John Debenedetti to the Board of Directors

The Chefs' Warehouse, Inc. announced that it has completed the previously announced acquisition of Del Monte Capitol Meat Co. and its affiliated companies for an initial purchase price of $185.1 million, including the initial net working capital adjustment. John DeBenedetti, former president and chief executive officer of Del Monte, has been appointed executive vice president of protein and is expected to be appointed to the company's Board of Directors later 2015.

Chefs' Warehouse Seeks Acquisitions

The Chefs' Warehouse, Inc. (NasdaqGS:CHEF) is seeking acquisitions. Chris Pappas, Chief Executive Officer, said, "Our integration of Euro Gourmet, which was announced in October of 2014 is going very well. As a reminder, Euro Gourmet is based in Beltsville, Maryland, and was founded in 1999. They are a wholesale specialty distributor of imported and domestic products in the Mid-Atlantic, and we folded them into our Baltimore-Washington facility. We believe this acquisition both complements our already extensive product selection, and expands our customer base in that market. While not a particularly large acquisition for us, we continue to look for complementary fold-in opportunities like this."
